Big Bird

Tom went into the oven at 8am. 23 pounds. Stuffed. The big homemade pumpkin pie went in at the same time, other oven.

Adult kids on tap for setting up bars and putting hors d’œuvres together and out. So much for the sangria with pomegranate seeds. Rotten inside. Ugh.

The NYC clan due at noon. The table is set except for the last minute moving of the card table over to the dining table to accommodate the three littlest ones.

Birthday cake photo to come later.

From the bottom of my heart, I wish you all Happy Thanksgiving. I’m very thankful for all of you. Thankful for my family. Thankful for the USA.

With love,

EOS and family

  1. To you as well. We’re gathered and busy cooking too, we meaning the women. The men are tending bar.
    Happy Thanksgiving from Miami.

  2. Looks so inviting. I can see the ghosts of past guests and even hear the buzz of happy conversation rising to crescendo as the wine glasses are refilled.
    Hope we all are happier today with family and friends.

  3. A lot to be thankful for…including this blog! I I check it every morning as I quaff my first coffee of the day.

  4. It all looks very inviting! I’m sure it will turn out well and a good time will be had by all.

    All the best from Florida left coast. Our daughter is here helping with cooking and son’s flight is on the way. Rainy here today but next couple of days are nice and I’m sure our kids will enjoy the weather before getting on the plane back to LGA on Sunday.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving!
    Not wanting to be “that guy”, but, I’ve been told that the sharp side of the knife is turned inward (toward the plate) so that it lessens the chance that serving staff will be endangered in the course of their duties.

  6. Beautiful bird
    Beautiful table
    Beautiful love

    Anon, we discovered in out history studies that knife turned outward is also a sign of aggression, from ancient and/or medieval times. Especially when resting on your plate.

    And, watch out for aggressive turkeys:

  7. The fact of the matter is the sharp side of the blade faces the food to be cut/sliced. I’ve heard all sorts of other reasons but practicality makes the most sense to me. I’ll have to keep an eye out for how people place their knives on the plate, though.
    Wild turkeys can be nasty, aggressive and dangerous. Brookline, MA has a big problem with turkeys who attack people.
    I’m so pleased EOS allowed us to share in her Thanksgiving instead of closing up shop for the week.
